is a cargo and ammuntion ship opened by the united states navy and she is our second ship to come in since we have established our shore porn system at peer 70 and the whole reason that she has been able to come here to strainings is it's ability to hook up to the shore power system which, is a critical factor for the navy and so this contract is between 13 and $15 million depending on how much work the neath please wantses to do and it will generate 70 man hours in the 53 days that it's here and so it's very exciting news for us. the usns richard bird and matthew pairy which was tices the previous ship that came in equals $150,000 and 150 man hours and so what a great investment and thanks to all of the port team and various regulating agencies that helped us to do had a and of course, our thanks to the va that is terrific news. in january, our good friend charles fan owner of slanted door is going to open a new restaurant restaurant at peer three going to be called hard water and after the hard water making whiskey and so hard water is going to be new orleans inspired and inspired in bourb
of navy when officer mcdonald was killed by a pipe-bomb, which is one unsolved murder going over 30 something years. eric mar, went on record supporting exonerate the killers and sponsored legislation because the murders were so long ago she should be forgiven. i don't think any murder in this country should be forgiven under any circumstances at any time. we all run into a problem with the police department and sometimes we have problems with them and sometimes we have battles with them, but nothing justifies murdering a policemen when he is doing his job and letting the murderers go free and then having legislators at city hall at the board of supervisors run on a mandate that doesn't even mention or have the media talk about it. that that man sponsored legislation that let four murderers off the hook because it was so long ago. i think anybody here or anybody listening tonight should one, thank you warren hinkle for coming out with an article in his newspaper, the argonaut that goes into how eric mar alone, two that you are going to give out an award, give an award to mr. warren
